One quick example of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in action is temperature measurement. Traditionally, these measurements included piping or vessel penetrations, thermowells installed, RTD or thermocouple sensing elements and transmitters, wiring/fittings/junction boxes/conduit/cable trays/etc., marshalling panels and connections in the control system I/O. For critical temperature measurement and control this is still very important […]

Thermowells, as tubular fittings in pipes and vessels, provide protection for temperature measurement devices. As we highlighted in a post from several years back, New Thermowell Calculations Help Avoid Damaging Resonance, they are subject to the stresses and strains from the fluid flowing by. In a LinkedIn article by Emerson’s Timchan Bonkat, Rosemount Twisted Square […]

As technology has advanced in power and sophistication, its ability to self-diagnose and perform predictive diagnostics has too. In a Plant Engineering article, Using diagnostic functions to improve system safety, Emerson’s Mark Menezes shares examples of how these diagnostics are used to self-diagnose instrumentation problems as well as those in the surrounding production process. He […]

A key part of the Industrial Internet of Things is the sensors that provide the measurements that feed decisions and actions. At the Emerson Exchange conference in Austin, Emerson’s Cheng Vue presented, When the Heat is On, Control with Wireless. His abstract: Many measurement challenges exist when monitoring high temperature assets such as arc furnaces. […]
